FORT COLLINS, Colo. — New Belgium Brewing announces its launch of Voodoo Ranger Starship IPA, a 7.7 percent ABV, limited time offering out nationwide today. Finishing as the runner-up in 2019’s Vote Voodoo Campaign, fans urged the brewery to produce it. This highly drinkable American IPA brewed with Galaxy hops is out-of-this-world delicious.
This latest limited time beer is this year’s first release in the Voodoo Ranger Rotating IPA series. With a light to moderate sweetness, Starship IPA is brewed with unique mid-fermentation dry hopping techniques. When combined with out-of-this world Galaxy hops, Starship IPA gives fan’s palates notes of fresh grapefruit and citrus.
“We are super excited to launch our first of many brands using a new to New Belgium dry hopping technique called mid-fermentation dry hopping. Years of research went into fine tuning this method and we know it is going to live up to the rest of the Voodoo Ranger series that took 2019 by storm.” states Ross Koenigs, Research and Development Brewer at New Belgium.
Creating this unique beer is possible due to newly installed brewing equipment that allows Voodoo Ranger brewers to highlight very specific expressions of hop flavors and aromas in beer. The result is fragrances of grapefruit and tropical fruits, with a moderate sweetness and bitterness in balance. Starship IPA marks the first brew with this newly added technology and will be distributed nationally.
